Rusev and Aiden English are heels in the ring but get a great reaction when they come out. Rusev Day merchandise is obviously doing well too seeing how they keep booking him in big matches. Rusev might not be winning but at least he’s losing in high profile spots.
On SmackDown Live this week, Aiden English came out to hype their entrance and had a custom “Rusev Day” microphone cover. This actually isn’t the first week they’ve used it but we had a few people asking us about the matter.
Aiden English has actually been sporting this custom microphone cover since before WrestleMania but it should be a note that the idea of Rusev Day probably isn’t going away any time soon. After all, very few people get the custom microphone and cover treatment in WWE. It’s hard to come up with many people who have received this kind of gimmick other than top stars and The Miz’s microphone cover is just the regular WWE one turned upside down.
Therefore this is a pretty good sign for fans of Rusev and Aiden English that WWE has some faith in them as a pairing.
